I think the last entry dated 15/12/16 reads:

O.C. Ship; Jaundice transferred to England for H.S.(Home Service); Place: Wimereaux

Not certain of some of the other writing which is unclear.

Disembarked 30.8.16

(Physically went to) 39 Infantry Base Depot

12.9.16 Transferred to 8th Buffs

14.9.16 joined battalion in the field

23.11.16 73 Field Ambulance admitted pyrexia (text too small to read)

thanks very much for your assistance.

He also served at a later date in the 1 / 5 buffs in Mesopotamia and his first regiment was the royal fusiliers

At a guess I would say he re-enlisted in WW2 in the Pioneer Corps??

Hi Neil

thanks for that, just was not sure on P.C.

I take it this means he could have been entitled to DF, BWM?

regards and thanks

Hi again all

just a quick question in regards to a service number.

I have a medal awarded to a private in the Northumberland Fusiliers and the prefix on his service number is TR5 / 1400

Does the TR5 / mean he was in the training reserve 5th Battalion?

regards and thanks

No! The TR5 number is the District. See the mother site here: http://www.1914-1918.net/training_reserve.htm and find all the Northumberland Fusiliers rows. You'll quickly narrow down some potential NF training battalions for your man.
